s my understanding that heart pain is almost usually a deep, dull aching pain
, and an intense gripping pain
in a heart attack. Any sharp
, stinging, or sticking pains are probably in the ribs, muscles, or nerves. I tell you that reluctantly because there are always exceptions. If there are no other symptoms, it's probably harmless. If it's almost time for a checkup anyway, you may want to mention it to your doctor just to ease your mine (and mine!).
